Celebrating Somerset as a place to live, work, play and learn

What we do – 

We celebrate Somerset’s birthday by encouraging communities, organisations, businesses and individuals to join in the birthday party over the weekend nearest to 11th May, Somerset Day.

We run Shop Somerset, a platform to connect local businesses to consumers and communities all year round – to foster and encourage ‘Buy Somerset’.

The Somerset Day Community Interest Company helps inspire pride in our historic county and all it has to offer.

We want everyone to relish in the stunning countryside, historic cities, abundant produce, amazing businesses, festival culture and rich heritage of the county historically known as ‘the land of the summer people’.
